Patient Care Link: State Action on Avoidable Rehospitalizations Initiative (STARR)

The PatientCareLink Mission: To help participating hospitals provide transparent staffing and patient safety information to the public and other healthcare stakeholders, and also offer valid and reliable information on quality and safety to patients and healthcare workers alike. A multi-state project involving 53 hospitals, STARR was launched by the Institute of Healthcare Improvement (IHI) in May 2009 with grant funding from The Commonwealth Fund. 22 Massachusetts hospitals are enrolled in the initiative. To date, participating hospitals have formed cross-continuum teams and submitted baseline 30-day readmission rates. Now they are busy determining how to improve the patient’s transition from hospital to post-acute setting.
